When those silent, ever-present, guardian angels are invited, and allowed, to participate in our affairs, then all of life’s little lessons generate joyous outcomes.
The spectrum of emotional challenges which our souls may encounter, are experienced as being more or less overwhelming, depending upon how far we are straying from centre.
Without going out of my door
I can know all things on earth
With out looking out of my window
I can know the ways of heaven
The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows
Those who are missed by many whom they have never met, except through their computer screens, will surely collect many fine souvenirs, when they pass, to remind them of how well their lives were lived.
From the centre look outwards, then from the circle look inwards. Yin becomes Yang becomes Yin; ad infinitum. Removing attention from these particulars, absorb the whole, and be guided to realise that in every moment that passes, divine balance is available.
which divides and dissects,
does not satisfy the needs
of the spirit,
for the spirit finds peace
When I was small, I could see no real differences between people. Growing up, I learned to love many cultures, and chose to work in a so-called multi-cultural environment. I hated the nonsense of division: even a child can understand that humanity is one, a family of souls, experiencing infinite complexity in infinite diversity. And even a child can know that all life is both miraculous and irreplaceable. And, to this day I still cannot see any real differences between people.
Yet, when compassion fails in others, through patience, may we find many gifts of divine growth in ourselves.
If it were not for the scorn, the way would not be sacred.
With my deepest appreciation for all readers, likes, and follows. I hope you have enjoyed this stream of consciousness post. Thank you so much for your support, and your friendship. It really helps during the difficult hours. Until next time, Namaste from Amras.
